Underwater Dance: David Bolger Performs Beautifully With His 76-Year-Old Mother (VIDEO)

The heartwarming video above features a charmingly simple dance between Irish choreographer David Bolger and his 76-year old mother. In Conor Horgan's short film, "Deep End Dance," Bolger dons a suit, and his mother joins him for a set of pool acrobatics.

"It was me trying to marry two loves of my life: dance and water," Bolger, the co-founder and artistic director of CoisCeim Dance Theatre in Dublin, says in the video. As a child, the choreographer was always drawn to the bottom of the pool where he would "make up stories and adventures and things."

He and his mother, Marge, whirl and twirl in the depths of the swimming pool where Marge worked -- and where she first taught her son how to swim many years ago.
